About this Cook
I am a mother of two teenagers, owner of 5 cats, 1 bird, and a multitude of fish. I work from home for multiple companies, including as an emergency guide. I was born and bred in Ohio and West Virginia, raised on Southern and Hungarian cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Cabbage rolls, corned beef and cabbage, roasted chickens, chicken paprikas, grilled veggies, and any type of dessert.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cabbage rolls are a huge tradition in my family. Everyone from toddlers to the elderly get in on the cooking. Baking over 20 different cookies during the holidays is another tradition I still carry on with my teenagers today.
My cooking triumphs
Learning how to cook less Hungarian, and more healthy. Just this past year I learned I have extreme cholesterol and BP issues, which meant a whole new way of cooking. It's been a challenge, but I'm learning as I go.
Recipe Reviews 1 review
Simple Whole Roasted Chicken
Loved the different spices, however cooking at such high temperatures without covering led to overcooked skin. Second time around I adjusted the oven temperature and covered the chicken for the final 30 minutes, came out with perfect skin.
